Melbotis Reading Club: All the Pretty Horses

Hey, Leaguers...

I've had a question regarding what I'm actually reading. I picked up a three book Cormac McCarthy collection of the Border Trilogy.

It's just over $20 for three books in hard cover, and that ain't bad.

Here.

There was also some talk of some sort of reading circle. Well, I'm reading All the Pretty Horses, and I'm on about page 95 right now if you want to catch up.

Before I read my next book, I'll be listing the book and version of it I'll be reading before I crack the cover. And if you want to play along at home, feel free to do so.

May I suggest a book for your new reading list - What is the What - a novel/memoir by Dave Eggers. It's about one of the Lost Boys of Sudan - but not as depressing as it sounds. The story really pulls you in. Far and away the best book I've read in several years.

I did enjoy Eggers "Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius". I will definitely put this in the queue. Thanks for the rec!

I read All the Pretty Horses and bought the trilogy for my brother in law for Christmas last year. I think I'm about to read No Country for Old Men, which I missed before. I'd like to read it before I see the movie. Have you read any other McCarthy?

I had not previously read any McCarthy. I did like the movie enough to become curious about his other books, so I wanted to give a few a shot. Maybe eventually I'll circle back to "No Country for Old Men". It's always tough once you've seen a movie to go and read the book, so I would want to give it a while.

Thumbs-way-up for idea of a League Reading Club!

Thank JMD. It was, sadly, not my idea.
